EPIC Ambassador Program

EPIC Ambassadors are kids, teens and adults with special needs who live in our community, and volunteer their time to be our advocates for inclusion. Their role is to participate in town and school events to shine the spotlight on their abilities and show how inclusion can work more robustly in our community.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for people with special needs by increasing awareness and promoting full inclusion in our community. We aspire to implement programs, services and opportunities in areas such as social, recreational, educational, vocational, transportation, training, housing and care services.

Core Belief 

All people and their families have the right to live, love, work, plan and pursue their life aspirations in our community.

This Committee shall report and make recommendations to the Town Board on the concerns of the Town’s residents with disabilities, provide updates on the Americans with Disabilities Act, and disseminate information on the Town’s recreational, educational and social programming to all age groups of residents with disabilities.

Primary Goals: 

  • Social Inclusion in Town activities—recreational and otherwise
  • Growing employment opportunities with and within our local businesses
  • Spearheading development of the Chappaqua PAC as a hiring site for people with disabilities
